ln September, 1946, thirty-six,Freshmen entered Troy High School. During the year the
class was well represented in various activities. Early in the year, we had a class party in the
During our Sophomore year, we were again well represented in school activities. At
Hallowe'en, we enjoyed a party held at the home of Mrs. Alden, our Advisor.
Our Junior year was highlighted by the Junior-Senior Banquet. The formal banquet was
built around a Spanish theme. The gay decorations included a wishing well, Spanish balcony,
false ceiling of crepe paper streamers and the "Farewell Seniors" waswritten 'with silver stars
on blue crepe paper which gave the impression of the message written in the sky. A
Eleanor Broughton, of Dorset, England was a member of the class during the fir st semester
of our Junior year.
At the end of the year, we went on a week-end educational trip to Columbus with the Seniors.
Now twenty-one of us are nearing our goal as Seniors.
In sports, we have been well represented throughout our four years. This year two of the
var sity basketball players, Ronnie Chapman and Dorsey Burkhammer represented our class.
Manager of the team was Bascil Wines and cheerleaders were Dottie Brandeberry and Barbie
Several girls have been in the Glee Club all four years and six members of our class are
four-year members of the orchestra. Mickie, Mary Lois, Barbie and Dottie are also in the
Girls' Ensemble. Several girls are members of the F. H. A. and some of the boys are members
All Seniors have helped sell Christmas cards to raise funds for the class. We also did our
share at the Fall Festival which raised the funds for our new movie projector.
Now as Seniors, we are collaborating with the Juniors to publish the 1950 Trojan. All have
helped to make it a success, many being on the Trojan Staff and other helping to finance the
publication. We are also hoping to make a trip to Washington D. C. with the Juniors in May.
Our Senior Class play, "Damsels in Distress," was presented in April. We are proud of
our class and its accomplishments for the past four years. We have enjoyed working and play-
ing together and are sorry that our good times together are coming to an end. However, we
must smile and remember that this is "Not the end, but the beginning!"
Class officers are:

As The Years Roll By
One warm day in the month of August, I was walking through the woods when suddenly I
spied a queer book sticking out of a hollow tree trunk. Upon further examination, I found it con-
tained the names of my classmates and what they would be doing in the year of 1960.
On the first page appeared the name of Dottie Brandeberry, our class President. She is
spending her spare time planning and decorating old houses.
The second page bore the name of Betty Ann Bryan. She had made a name for her self as an
opera singer. She has given up the stage and is raising a happy group of youngsters.
Otis Allen, after years of selling pencils has made a fortune and he and Mary have settled
down to a life of leisure.
Nettie Barnhart runs the Korner Kitchen. Louva Bise is one of her many waitresses.
Frances Brummage is a famous horse trainer for Republic Studios.
Dorsey Burkhammer, the boxing champion, has put his gloves away as he is ready to re-
Ronnie Chapman, disappointed in love, now owns and operates the local movie theater. In
the current picture, Donna Connolly is the star. I see this is her last picture as she is going to
marry her high school sweetheart Tom Taylor, who is now a bull fighter in Mexico.
Jean Faren is a nurse in a large Cleveland hospital.
Barbie Davis is a famous ballet dancer and is now on vacation in Coolville. She is a happy
Carol Gillian is now head coach of a girls' basketball team. Her latest game was at
Madison Square Garden in New York.
Ray Hall, Hockingport's old bachelor, is making his living by piloting an airplane.
Norma Ice has gone to the West where she and her husband tend thousands of sheep.
Maynard Clark and Therman Deeter operate a huge machine shop in New Jersey.
Jo Cogar has finally achieved her goal as an artist. Her paintings are known the world
Bascil Wines, our class "joker" is now taking the place of Jack Benny. His programs are
heard three nights a week.
Mickey Crawford is ---- but the rest of the page is gone so we will have to wonder as to her
a member of
A is for alphabet, our names are all here
Lest we should forget our classmates so dear.
Allen, or Otis, first we will call
Let he, with his trumpet, be leader of all.
B is for Betty with black shining hair
A nice friendly girl with nary a care.
C is for cheerleaders of which we have two
Sweet little Barbie and gay Dottie Lou.
Smiling and peppy a jolly good pair
Cheering their team they were always right there.
D is for Donna with lovely brown tresses
Neatness and promptness her daily life stresses.
E is for Mrs. Eddy, our home room teacher so grand
We think she's the best to be found in the land.
E's also for everybody, that's all of us
And we love one another, tho' sometimes we do fuss.
F is for Frances who likes horses and fun
As gay and exciting you seldom find one.
G is for Gillian, Carol, that is
For beauty and sports she sure is a whiz.
H is for Hall, our good-natured Ray
He teases us girls the live long day.
I is for Ice, our Jeanie so cute and quiet
Her figure's just right, she doesn't need to diet.
J is Jean, Faren this time
She is jolly and talkative, we think she's just fine.
K is for Kiracofe, our Advisor, and also his wife
Their kindness to us we'll remember all through life.

A nice quiet girl, with us she's first rate.

Also for Maynard so friendly and true.
Mary Jo has talent in writing and art
Mary Lois takes her sewing and music to heart.
N is for Nettie the fairest of all
She plans to be married before next fall.
O1 we exclaim when Dorsey appears
With those muscles and smiles he has nothing to fear
P is for pests, our teachers declare
We know 'tis true, but what do we care?
Q is for questions our teachers do ask
To give the right answer has been a task.
R.is for Ronnie our basketball star
He's studious, no doubt he'11 go far.
S is for Satan who tempts us to cheat
Not us, for we know 'as we sow we shall reap.'
T is for Tommy and Therman as well
Two more boys who really are swell
Tommy in Ag is really a whiz
Therman is happy when driiving a Liz.
U is for us, the whole twenty-one
Many tributes of praise and honor we've won.
V is for victory our goal for twelve years,
And now as we reach it our eyes fill with tears.
W is for Wines and Wanda called Mick
Without them we know things never would click.
Mickey is graceful and pretty indeed
While Bascil's good looking and the friend we all need.
X Y and Z in Algebra we found
And just left them there, didn't need 'em around.
The alphabet ended, our roll call is done
So Farewell, dear Troy High, and Good Luck Everyone.
We, the Senior Class .of 1950, believing we possess sane minds and sound bodies,.with
four years of hard work behind us, deem it necessary to make our last will and testament, thus
leaving the stepping stones, that we have found useful in our journey, marked for the students

In the fall of 1947, forty-four students from Lottridge, Hockingport and Coolville gathered
at Troy High to begin their high school career as "Freshies." We organized our class and
elected our officers for the following year. .
As Freshmen and Sophomores, we participated in all school activities such as Glee Club,
F. H. A., F. F. A., basketball and track.
As Juniors, we again gathered at Troy High, eager to learn. Several of our class have
left and several have joined our class. We now have thirty-three members.
Ivan Creeger, Joe Dalton, Carl I-Iolbert, George Bise and Donald Russell have helped to
score basketball victories for Troy. Alvin Pierce is manager of the team. Jeanette Henderson
and Jane Bryan are members of the Pep Team.
Margaret Kennedy, Jeanette Henderson, Alvin Pierce, Joe Dalton, John Humphrey have
helped to make up the scholarship team from this school.
On December 14, we presented a play "Aaron Slick From Punkin Crick" which was 3 huge
success. The cast was made up of Jane Bryan, Myrtle McGlone, Sarah Guthrie, Marie Moore,
Alvin Pierce, Glenn Criss and John Humphrey. The play was directed by Mr. Winters.
With the Seniors, we are publishing "The Trojan."

The Sophomore Tidings
In September, 1948, thirty-four Freshmen were eager to begin their fir st year in high
school. They came from Coolville, Hockingport, and Lottridge. That year there were no addi-
tions to our class.
In the spring, three of our members, Larry Kiracofe, Fleda Kimble, and Jean Davis took
scholastic tests at Athens, but didn't place. '
In 1949, there were twenty-eight of us gathered in the Sophomore room. Four of our
members withdrew before the term ended.
At the Fall Carnival, we sponsored the Fortune Teller's Booth, Penny-A-Pitch and Guess
Your Weight. The money that was earned helped to buy a new movie projector for the high.
We are proud to have so many of our boys on the basketball squad. They are: Lowell
Thompson, Larry Kiracofe, Bobbie Murrey, Arnold Smith, Charles Gibbs, Joe Owens. We are
sure they will develop into fine players. Also on the pep team, we have two members. Lois
Galbreath and Jean Davis.
Several are members and officers of F. H, A., F. F. A., Glee Club, and Orchestra.
Most of our F. H. A. girls are on the cast for a play, "Judy Takes Over" to be sponsored
by the F. H. A.
Three of the girls, Jo Ann Shaffer, Jean Davis, and Anne Archer are members of the
girls' ensemble formed this year.

"We will work while we work
And play while we play
That makes everyone happy and gay--"
A little good morning song Mrs. Whitehead taught us, seems to fully express our way of
life in the primary room.
Living and Learning Together is our motto--so together we are glad we can report a happy
progressive-and sagfying learning experience during the year 1949-50. Mrs. Fleda Malone is
The second and third grades, with Miss Humphrey as teacher, began the school year with
an enrollment of fifteen in the second grade and thirty-one in the third grade. The children
took an active part in the Christmas Program and P. T. A. Program. Other special days have
been observed in their own room.
Pupils in both grades are interested in their studies and are making much progress in
their school work.
The school year 1949-50, found the fourth and fifth grade room with an enrollment of forty-
eight. We are a busy bunch of boys and girls. Besides our lessons, we collect sales stamps,
sell seeds, and do whatever we can to earn money. The proceeds from such is being used for
the purchase of an electric clock for our room, some school supplies, and for our social
In January, we furnished entertainment for the P. T. A. by singing three songs and giving
two short plays. We plan to have a picnic dinner on the Friday before school is out and invite
our mothers to participate. Mrs. Freda Faber is our teacher.
The fifth and sixth grade room has been improved this year by the installation of new
lights, new window shades and a new bulletin board.
The pupils have given two short plays, one for the Christmas assembly and the other one
of a patriotic nature was given at the February meeting of the P. T. A.
We believe we have some good basketball material for coming years.
The seventh grade started the year with an enrollment of thirty boys and girls. During the
year, Sarah Pyles moved away, leaving only twenty-nine.
We were also sorry to lose Mr. Toth at the end of the fir st semester, but now we have
Mr. Bibbee as a full-time teacher.
Our boys are trying hard to help develop a good Junior High basketball team.
In September, the eighth grade enrolled twenty-four members. Within a few weeks, Edith
C-ole moved away, but a little later Cleda and Theda I-Iapney joined our class. Heidi Hooveen
spent a few days with us, before journeying on to Florida. At the beginning of the second .

Carthage Grade School
Carthage School's total enrollment is one hundred and fifty, which is the largest in its
history. Although the classes are larger than usual, they are progressing normally.
Included in our extra-curricular activities for the year are: ball games, Fall Festival,
Thanksgiving Program, Christmas entertainment and operetta.
Our Fall Festival was a success from the financial standpoint. We cleared approximately
S170.00, This money has been used for payment of postage on films, which amounts to from
50.40 to S 1.00 per week. We have also purchased a folding screen, a microphone, material
to make a set of six swings, a number of baseballs, a catcher's breast protector, a mask, shin
guards, bats and many other articles including a twenty per cent payment on a set of boxing
All of our entertainments are attended by a large number of parents and friends of the
community. We are very proud of the interest manifested by the people of the community in
their school and its activities.
Our operetta was entitled "Magic Bean Stalk" and was held near the middle of April.
We consider our programs very educational for the students and will endeavor to make
them entertaining for everyone. Therefore we would like for each of you, who read this short
summary of school activities to feel that you are personally invited to attend all of Carthage
Hockingport School News
The two years since our last Trojan's publication have rolled around very rapidly but they
find us a happy group of fifty-one boys and girls--fsixty-four, last yearj in grades one through
eight. Last year, seven left us for high school. This year two more hope to reach that goal.
Though small in numbers we've had big hopes and ambitions. Some have been realized:
some not. But that's life and we believe it is better to fall a bit short of a high goal than to
reach a low one.
To obtain some equipment, we have sold seeds both years. Our picture commission added
a little more to our funds. These have been used to buy playground equipment, rainy-day
games for indoors, and, best of all, a school flag which we proudly display on all good days.
We have also made contributions to Red Cross, T. B., and C. R. O. P.
Several programs have been given--Christmas, patriotic, Riley day, etc.--with nice
audiences each time.
The main interest, of course, has been our day by day work. Much of our program
material has been integrated with our daily work.
We have very much enjoyed our Reading Circle books and other reading materials made
available. "Current Events," "Open Road for Boys," and "Nature" magazines come regularly
to our reading table.
Health projects have been stressed in all grades and absences from sickness have been
rare, With few exceptions our attendance has been very satisfactory.
As a last day celebration in '49, we visited the museum and other points of interest in
Marietta and had a picnic dinner in the park. We hope to celebrate in some similar way this

During the past few years it has become evident that Physical Education is essential for
every boy and girl. Our aim is to develop clean sportsmanship and a love for play and competi-
tive games. A boy who is a clean Sportsman will be a clean-cut individual in any work of life.
To be a clean sportsman is to be an honest Sportsman, and to be an honest sportsman is to be
an individual who is an asset to his country and community rather than a liability. If we can
accomplish this one aim the cost of maintaining athletics for our schools is well paid for.
In the past year, we have endeavored to maintain our standards as high as possible in
baseball, basketball and track. In basketball, we were handicapped to a certain extent because
of the lack of height in the players and when Coach Bibbee blew the whistle that grouped his
boys around him for the beginning of the season, he was faced with the prospects of having the
smallest team in Athens County.
Only one varsity man, Ronald Chapman, returned from last year's team. The other four
varsity men were Joe Dalton, Ivan Creeger, Dorsey Burkhammer, and Carl 'Holbert.
On the reserve were, Lowell Thompson, Larry Kiracofe, George Bise, Donald Russell,
Arnold Smith. Subs for these boys were, Russell Creamer, Glen Reed, Bob Murrey, Charles
Gibbs, Joe Owens, Richard McGlone, Kenneth Null, Bill Dunfee. Leroy White, who hails from
Chester, joined the team during the second semester.
The managers were, Bascil Wines, who has been manager for four years, and Alvin Pierce,
who has been manager three years.
School spirit has been kept at a high pitch by competent chedrleaders and pep team.
There are four cheerleaders this year. Dottie Lou Brandeberry and Barbie Davis, who have
been cheerleaders for the past four years are cheering for their last time this year. Joan Clark
and Yvonne Henderson were chosen as cheerleaders this year and will continue as cheerleaders
throughout the next three years.
The pep team, which is something new at Troy this year, consists of Jane Bryan, Jeanette
Henderson, Jean Davis, Lois Galbreath, JoEl1eZ0Kiracofe.

In the basketball season of '49, the Troy Basketball Team held fourth place in the Athens
County League and was looking forward to winning the County Tournament. The tournament
began on the night of February ZZ. The team consisted of Leslie Cole, Clair Creamer, Burl
Crawford, Jack Baker, Ronald Chapman, Ivan Creeger, Herschel Moore and Coach, Paul
They played their first game with Waterloo at the Athens High School Gymnasium and won
by a score of 53 to 27. Their second game was played with The Plains and the Troy High
Team won by a score of 47 to 27. The third game was with Jacksonville-Trimble. This game
was the most exciting of the year and Troy won by a score of 38 to 34. This was the final game
of the tournament and gave Troy the Championship of Athens County and also qualified the team
for entering the Southeastern District Tournament.
We played our first game in the District Tournament with Racine but were defeated by a
score of 51 to 53. Nevertheless it had been a very successful season for the Troy High School
